    Hi Girls, :)

    The following list has been provided by NAAF as a guide to help deal with Alopecia Areata. I think a lot of this info could be used for coping with hairloss in general no matter what the cause. Hope the info here helps. Hugs Joann

    Gather information about Alopecia Areata from NAAF via telephone and it's website http://www.naaf.org

    Gather information about treatment altenatives, as well as their relative effectiveness, cost and side effects.

    Connect with others who have Alopecia Areata through NAAF's support groups, Pen Pal program or Web site message boards.

    Make decisions with physicians, family, and friends regarding whether to pursue treatments and if so, which ones.

    Gather information from NAAF about wigs and cosmetics for dealing with hair loss.

    Preserve your emotional balance by learning coping strategies for managing symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress.

    Sustain and strengthen relationships with family and friends who are willing to talk about feelings associated with dealing with Alopecia Areata

    Pursue positive areas of your life (work, education, personal growth, exercise, health, recreation, intimate relationships etc.)
